    A and C both theoretically fit before "overweight" but I don't think many doctors would claim to be able to tell that you were only "slightly overweight" by just taking "one look at you". That phrase suggests that something is very obvious and on that basis, I would expect them to say that after just one look, they were only able to say that you were "certainly overweight". Presumably they would then weigh you to find out exactly how overweight you are!
